About Us

Our Mission Statement

Lighthouse of Oakland County serves residents of southeastern Michigan who are facing economic hardship by providing the support and resources they need to move from crisis towards self-sufficiency. 

For the last 45 year, Lighthouse has been a Beacon of Hope to our neighbors who need us the most. Families that come through our doors are worried, sometimes embarrassed, and often desperate. Families turn to us seeking support for the most basic of needs such as food or shelter. Many of these are seeking help for the first time.

Lighthouse meets more than just the needs of a few. Lighthouse’s vision is to solve the problem of chronic poverty by providing the individuals we serve with the resources, relationships, and skills they need to be independent - enriching their lives and the community as a whole.

 The help and hope provided by Lighthouse enables our clients to strive for a brighter, more secure life for themselves and their family. We move families from crisis to self-sufficiency - one day, one program, one person, one family at a time.
